Seven-year-old Tyeisha is a key member of the Dusty Feet Mob, a group of Aboriginal young people and children aged between 6-29 years, from South Australia’s Port Augusta. Through music and dance, they seek to educate others about painful stories in Indigenous/white history, such as the Stolen Generation, as well as celebrating what unites. They have been dancing together since 2014. The Dusty Feet Mob was one of many highlights at NCYC’s Yurora 17.
Highlights this month include:
- Uniting Church leader recognised with Australia Day honour
- A high-profile and controversial ministry draws to a close
- Plenty of youthful passion on display at NCYC Yurora 17
- D’arcy Wood looks at how the UCA started its 40-year journey
- Synod Snaps from the Christmas and summer break period
